  1. If you will stick the suction cup to your windshield make sure to clean it first use dry clothe and put pressure while rubbing it to the windshield.
  2. After cleaning it before you stick the suction cup to the windshield make sure the lock is release and then put a pressure and then while pressing it then that's the time you will lock it.

No suction when using wand on electrolux precision upright


There is a ball valve between the wand hose and the base hose. It can get stuck in the "base" mode, which won't then redirect suction to the wand hose. There is a spring under the cup that the open end of the hose rests in. When you release the wand from the holster with the one-touch quick release, that spring pushes the cup up and turns the ball valve to the wand setting.
  1. Unplug the vacuum.
  2. Using the one-touch quick release, remove the wand from the holster.
  3. Verify that the wand "cup" is indeed in the higher position. Do this by pushing on the bottom of the cup with your finger. It should easily depress.
  4. Remove the wand hose from the main unit using the quick disconnect feature. Put your fingers into the hole and feel to the right. You will feel the closed valve, verifying that it is stuck in "base" mode.
  5. Using a screw driver, insert the tip at the TOP of this valve and gently pry it downward. This shouldn't take much force.
  6. Reassemble the hose wand using the quick connect feature and reholster the wand.
  7. Plug in the unit and verify that the base unit has suction.
  8. Remove the wand from the holster and verify IT has suction.

How to repair/reuse plastic suction cups Plastic suction cups are used in many...


<p>How to repair/reuse plastic suction cups<br /> <p>Plastic suction cups are used in many applications to hold things to hard smooth surfaces like glass, ceramic, laminate, metal, plastic, etc. With time the suction cups loose their holding (suction) strength due to hardening or deterioration. Before trashing and/or spending cash try this if you want a permanent or lasting installation. <br /> <p><span><span>1.<span> </span></span></span>Place the item in the position you want it to remain installed. Make matching marks to ensure that is were you want the item installed. Mark a dot in the center were the suction cup is to hold.<br /> <p><span><span>2.<span> </span></span></span>Clean the old suction cup suction face and mating surface thoroughly, ensure there is not grease or contaminants.<br /> <p><span><span>3.<span> </span></span></span>Apply a thin coat of urethane base all purpose adhesive such as UHU, Liquid Nails, etc. to the suction face and mating surface (do not use cyanoacrilates such as Super Glue or water based glues, they are too hard or too weak for the job).<br /> <p><span><span>4.<span> </span></span></span>Wait approximately 15-30 seconds for the adhesive dry to touch and press or install the item with suction cups at the desired location using your matching marks as guides. Keep the pressure for a few seconds to ensure good bonding. Once installed wait for at least six hours for the adhesive to completely dry, before loading or applying weight to your item if it is a hanger or shelve.<br /> <p><span><span>5.<span> </span></span></span>This should do the trick. If you need to disassemble your item in the future you may peel the suction cups gently using a scraper tool.

I need instructions on how to mount the nuvi 200w to my windshield


To secure the nuvi 200w to your windshield with the included suction cup mount (pictured below),


steve_con_6.jpeg

center the GPS on the clip, and tip the bottom edge on the bracket. Push the top of the GPS against the top clip until it clicks into place. Hold the bracket and GPS near the windshield where you like it best. Note where the suction cup is on the windshield in relation to the mirror, etc. Remove the GPS from the mount's clip by pushing the top tab back from the top of the GPS.

Clean the windshield (or portion that the suction cup will be stuck against) with a paper towel or newspaper and ammonia solution like Windex, etc. Clean the suction cup with the paper towel and Windex, too.

Lift the lever at the base of the mount - is shown in the picture above - if it isn't already. With the mount oriented as shown in the picture above, press the suction cup against the windshield where desired with one hand. Hold the mount firmly against the glass and use your other hand to press the lever on the base back toward the suction cup and glass. Press until it lays flat against the base / suction cup. Plug the power cord into the GPS and reinstall the GPS in the mount clips as done earlier.

To remove from the windshield, release the GPS from the mount clips, and lift the lever away from the base / suction cup. Locate the tab that is connected to the suction cup edge near the lever. Pull on the tab away from the glass to break the suction seal and remove from the windshield.

If this was helpful, please rate it 4 thumbs up. Thanks & good luck!

My Tom Tom will not stay fastened . The suction device will not hold. Is there a fix for this?


Hi.

This is the most common problem with the suction cup. Try to humidify it with water. This will get better suction. However it will leave a mark on your window when your remove it but it is the only way to get it more sticky.

My mount at the back of my Tom Tom does not stay secure and also the suction cup is not so good. How do I secure this? Thank you


This is pretty common and a regular aftermarket universal one is my recommendation to you.

Another issue is that the screen in the area you want to attach must be super clean. I use isopropynol to clean the area and the back of the suction cup only then do I wet it slightly with clean water (don't lick it LOL)

These cups are also subject to suction failure in large temperature swings (I live in Canada so I can tell you about those)

The after market ones do seem better from personal experience.

Suction cup on tom tom does not work any sugesstions?


Use a computer or TV screen cleaning solution on the windshield and the cup then lick your finger and wet the cup. Also check for a lever that adds to the suction, if this lever is on your device and is in the wrong position, it will not stick. Also you should affix the unit to the window when the temps are at a median point, if you put it on when the car is 100 degrees it will fall off in colder weather, and vise versa for 0 degrees.

Hope this helps.

Windshield Mounting Unmounting


first the round plate... that has a sticky circle on the bottom.... you remove the tape and stick it on a surface where you want the gps... then when you want to mount the gps you suction cup it to that disk. now for the suction cup... when it is disengaged the plastic suction cup will be loose. to attach it to the plate or window... you swing the small arm on the base of it up or down... you will see as it will lock the suction... the gps should clip onto the holder so you can leave the holder where it is and remove the gps and slip it into your pocket.

Not the best instructions but you will get the idea

LG GPS not suctioning to windhield


You must clean the window area using windex, or other cleaner, and wipe until dry. A clean winshield area provides the best suction, from the mounting bracket.

Slide the mounting bracket switch to Off & On a few times, make sure the suction cup is able to move(slightly) and that the small tap is facing the area with the notch in the metal.
After putting the switch to the middle, moisten the suction cup slightly
(saliva works bestter than water for some reason)
press it to the window with a slight amount of pressure
then move the switch, (Which should be set to Center!)
to lock it on firmly.

If this doesn't work, then there is a good chance the suction cup has become hardened by the sun. If that is the situation, you'll have to contact LG
(or a place that sells "knock off" brackets to get a replacement.)

I never leave my LG GPS in the car, when not in use. Even the bracket comes out, as I've seen what the sun can do to damage those plastic suction cups, fortunately, I learned it on a $5 replacement set for a Radar detector/Emergency Vehicle Alert device, and not a more expensive bracket.
